Please can anyone help me! I am 29 years old and for the past 13 months I have been fainting at any time at any place with no warning, hospital tests have ruled out epilepsy + cardiac problems but my drs have no idea what else it could be and the only treatment they can suggest is counselling to help me cope with feeling down (due to having no life now I pass out). Please let me know if you have any ideas, I am now getting very desperate and my children are struggling to cope with thinks as well.
